The best hypothesis for the developmentof FMS,CFS and the
other environmental illnesses can be explained by damage to the mitochondrion.
The mitochondrion is the intracellular body that produces the cell's energy.
When various factors, including virus, oxidative damage. free radicals,
environmental toxins, etc., damage the mitochondrion, particularly the mitochondria
DNA. it cannot produce adequate energy for the cell to maintain normal function.
This leads to low energy output and therefore, cellular dysfunction.
